Supergirl actor Jeremy Jordan will be downgraded to a recurring role in Season 4 after appearing on the show since it’s premiere on CBS. Don’t worry, however, because Winn Schott Jr. (Jordan’s character)has plenty more in store.
Winslow Schott was introduced in the show’s pilot episode as one of Kara Danvers’s close friends and an IT technician at Catco Worldwide Media. He was also the first to learn that Kara Danvers and Supergirl were one and the same, helped design her costume, and ran monitor duty. The star really began to shine in season 2 when he joined the Department of Extranormal Operations (DEO) as tech specialist where he could build gadgets and weapons for Supergirl and the government to help defeat hostile alien threats. His prolonged absence is explained by a time-traveling quest to save the future.
It was then revealed that Jordan himself made the decision to reduce his role on Supergirl, citing moving on to other projects and spending time with friends and family as his reasons. Jordan’s full thoughts can be seen below:
The CW Network also had this to say about Jordan’s reduced role:
We love Jeremy, and even though he’s [not going to be around full-time], we’re not saying goodbye to Winn at all. We’re already breaking big stories for him right now for the fall, and I think the fans will be excited to see what he has coming up.
In addition to Jordan’s reduced role, actor Chris Wood and his character Mon-El will no longer be a series regular either. To help offset these departures, Supergirl has increased Jesse Rath’s character, Legion of Superheroes’ leader Braniac 5, to a series regular. This replacement makes a lot of sense as the characters provide similar skills to Supergirl’s team as tech geniuses and a sense of humor.
The Supergirl season 3 finale has already aired, and the show will be moving to Sundays at 8:00 P.M. EST on the CW Network
